The best way to avoid quick losses is via education. On top of educating yourself, ongoing research and analysis must be done before entering into trades. Trading requires preparation alongside the formation of a trading plan or strategy. Any trading plan should be tested over time, and you can do this by opening a Demo Account to test it in a safe environment.
It’s free, and you’ll learn to become a more accomplished trader while avoiding real losses.
New to trading
Whether its work, sport, or academia, preparation and planning are crucial to success. Forex trading is no different.
New traders are often under the impression that Forex or Contracts for Difference (CFD) trading is simple stuff and just a matter of picking a direction for the market (up or down) and then collecting the winnings.

Macroeconomic data can have a crucial impact on financial markets. Keeping informed with the announcements on the economic calendar can be the difference between making a profit or a loss on a trading position. Subsequently, knowing how to interpret the data can provide you with significant opportunities in your markets.
Managing your Risk
Risk management is one of the most critical skill sets new traders to need to learn. When deciding on any trade or investment, the potential risks involved have to be considered carefully.
Strategy & Planning
You need a strategy to trade forex successfully. Without one, what you are doing is closer to gambling than trading. Randomly buying or selling a market with no set plan for entry level, target level, or stop loss simply doesn t make sense. It is only by defining a plan or strategy and testing it over time that you will be able to see if you have the potential for longer term success.
